Face Shapes & Eyebrows

A Long Face Shape Example 

Here a long face shape looks shorter with a flat eyebrow shape
Determine Your Face Shape
“Knowing your face shape is the first step to creating your most beautiful look.....”
There Are Six Basic Face Shapes

Start by pulling your hair back from your face, and with no makeup on, look closely in the mirror.

The features for each shape to look for are:

Oval Face Shape
Round Face Shape
Long Face Shape
forehead is wider than the chin
 face is almost as wide as it is long
 forehead, cheekbones and jawline are all about the same width
prominent cheekbones
 face is widest at the cheeks
 can tend to have a prominent chin
face gracefully tapers to a narrow oval chin

has an elongated appearance

Square Face Shape
Heart Face Shape
Diamond Face Shape
 forehead, cheekbones and jawline all about the same width
  similar to oval but the chin tapers to a point.
not as common as the other face shapes
 squared jawline is the most obvious feature

typically the face is highly angular

the forehead is somewhat short

 the face is widest at the temples

Still not sure? - A simple test

Divide the total length by 3. (In this case 8 divided by 3 is 2.67 or 2 2/3).

Measure the length from the bottom of your nose to the bottom of your chin. (in this case 2 1/3),

If the last number (the 2 1/3 number) is larger than the first number (the 2 2/3) than chances are you have a long face. 

If the last number is less than the first number than chances are you have a round face.

 If the last number is equal to the first number than chances are you have an oval face
 Measure the length of your face with a ruler. (In this case the total length of the face is 8).
